Fabo, Gik Tales Mixtape

It kinda sucks that a lot of people are not as familiar with Fabo as they should be. For a second there, post "Laffy Taffy" mega blowup it seemed like he was going to step on a spaceship made out of argyle socks and blast off into a hit-filled career. Instead we got a lot of silence, a couple good to great guest spots and, um, this. Now he's back with a new mixtape that we almost missed. It's mostly awesome but filled with middling beats. Turns out that's fine, because Fabo excels when he's allowed to just go off over anything that has drums in it, to start singing mid-verse for no reason. There are actually like 100 different ideas per song on this tape. It's pretty scary to think of what this dude could do with an actual recording budget and a couple hundred pounds of psychedelics.
